While nobody can really call The Smashing Pumpkins a metal band (they're hard rock at best) – we thought you might be interested to know that the Pumpkins have reunited… sorta.

Guitarist/vocalist Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin will be touring, playing classic songs and likely releasing new music down the line. Bassist D’arcy Wretzky was not invited to the reunion. She gave a long interview explaining why, apparently her and Billy Corgan have some drama. Corgan claims he invited her to the reunion, but she posted a text message conversation that she claims tells a different story. So,  Jeff Schroeder, who had previously been playing guitar for the band, will now handle bass duties.

The band promise to only play music from 1991's Gish, 1993's Siamese Dream, 1995's Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, 1998's Adore and 2000's Machina.
